Companies draw attention to SMIs because they can effectively promote a product, and are relatable and transparent which consumers like. The study aims to assess the influence of Social Media Influencers (SMIs) on the Online Purchase Intention of the Gen Z market in Metro Manila and the mediating role of Credibility. The desired responses of a sample size of 100 respondents that was needed for the study was not only achieved, but also exceeded to 409 respondents. The respondents were the followers of Bella Racelis, whose age ranges from 18 to 24 years old, which is the bracket of Gen Z.
